This place is quite lovely. A higher end but still affordable Mediterranean/middle eastern style restaurant. You you can do it small plates family style, and still have your own dish, but I do recommend sharing everything to get to try everything.

Dishes we had that I dug:
•Hummus “Mortar And Pestle”: with Tahini, Lemon, Roasted Garlic
•Crispy Cauliflower with Currants & Pine Nuts
•Grilled Marinated Octopus with Shaved Fennel, Sunflower Shoot & Seed Salad
•Boneless All Natural Half Chicken cooked “Under A Brick” with Israeli Couscous with Dried Apricots and Green Leeks, Gremolata Sauce
•Canteloupe Gazpacho with Almond Brittle, Jicama-Mint relish

Definitely check this place out.
